And so begins our annual 7th TexasCowboy Memorial Shoot.
Thank you humble gunner for the graphic.
TexasCowboy (aka COB1) was a true Texas gentleman, great friend, patriot, and a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment. It is truly an honor to continue a tradition he started many years ago, hosting shoots for FRiends around the great state of Texas.
Many FReepers are coming into town on Thursday so that they can have a tourist day on Friday. Those lucky people are going to be made (a good) miserable Thursday evening by enjoying TheMoms Kick Ass Enchiladas.
The only set tourist place is The Lady Lex.
Friday evening we will meet at Captain Bennys, 103 Fulton Beach Road Fulton, TX 78382, at 8:00 p.m., for a delicious seafood dinner. (They do not take credit cards or serve liquor ~ so remember to bring your cash & booze.)
Saturday morning we meet for breakfast at Alice Fayes, 910 North Fulton Beach Road, Fulton, TX 78358, at 8:00 a.m. The shoot is scheduled to start at 10:00 a.m. at, Schwenkes Gun & Pistol Range, 4407 FM 1069 Aransas Pass, TX, 78336. Mr. Schwenke has reserved the 25 yard shooting station for our group to use as home base. The only major rule at this range is do not shoot the livestock. A BBQ lunch will be served at 12:30ish.
Once the shooting is done some of us will be going to the Rockport Seafair, while others will go back to the Pelican Bay cottages for some R&R. Saturday evening will be filled with yummy junk food and margaritas!
According to the forecast, it looks as the weather will be perfect. Lows in the mid-sixtys, highs in the mid-eightys.
Can you send this to the whole ping list ...
Yes, you must pay for your reservation in full when you book. Their cancellation policy is $100 fee per cottage with no specified advance notice. They prefer that you reschedule if you can’t make it for whatever reason. There is no fee/cost to do that. They’ll just move your reservation to your newly selected date(s).
LOLOLOL. It's nobody in particular's screen name. Don't worry about using it...lol.
TheMom is The Bomb.
You mean no one in particular. Right?
I booked cottage 6, so I have plenty of room for you and Dr.O, should he come. There is one bedroom, two twin beds in loft and sofa sleeper. Don’t panic cause I have room if all the cottages book up.
Yes, and these folks too!
Mucho love and mega-hugs to sweet MK from W's "sweet Patty!"
I haven't dared mention this to him....yet! LOL. I checked out #6! LOVE the LOFT!

Laurenmarlowe and I have a room with two bedrooms and a pull out couch and maybe even some twin beds—I need to check further on the accomodations. LOL! I had to do this in sort of a hurry! NYT gets stuff started fast. :)
You are welcome to stay with us and pay later in cash if you wish and if it would be easier on the ol’ pocketbook.
I wasn’t really ready to do the whole pay up front, but didn’t want to miss out. LOL! We have lots of time to sort all this out. :)
Lol...I know what you mean about telling Dr.O...A is the same way. I just did it and told him about it a few minutes ago when he got back from the store. He was pissed all of 3 minutes. No biggy....lol. I am always hesitant to make reservations for trips so early but hopefully nothing will go wrong.
Gonna be fun!!
Dangit, where is the “like” button?
Thank you, so much, sweet ((((LUVW))))
Yes, we have lots of time to sort this out!
Pen booked hers, too and I think I will have to tell DrO tomorrow, (during his happy times watching football)...LOL. I want him to come with me this time, especially since Pen’s husband is coming and DrO already knows him in person.
Thanks very much, again! I’m a whole lot more relaxed about all of this now. I can sleep tonight!!!
A is a prince of a man! Much nicer and calm than W. I have to carefully choose my spots. LOL. Thankfully, his Chargers don’t play till Monday night. I can find a game tomorrow to tell and ask him! BTW, I’m attending with or without him. It’s on my way to San Diego for the graduations.
Going to be extra, super fun next year! You betcha!
2 bedroom, 1 bath, dining and living room. Sleeps up to 7 guests: king bed, full bed, and queen size sofa bed. Private Hot Tub.
I'd like to be there NOW! LOL!
We DO need a “like” button! I look for it all the time! LOL!
Private... HOT TUB....
Woooohooooo!!! Better’n a beach! :)
You missed Ping.
If you are the booker, GET ONE WITH A PRIVATE HOT TUB... omg.... shooting is stressful ya know....
I will pitch in for a third of cost.
But vurra vurra nice. :)
I'll be seving up broiled BBQ shrimp for an appetizer.
The main course features Steak Fondue:
Maybe Pen can whip up some of her GREAT guacamole...
I made our reservations for Thursday-Sunday. Is everyone getting there on Wed.? That might be hard for us but not impossible...lol.
I should have been clear, I meant my home!
I’ll bring you a big bottle of Tequila and I’ll arrive at Pen and A’s on Wednesday, you betcha, provided they’ll have pushy me again.
I understood that your meant at your beautiful home.
If onyx is staying with Pen...then you can stay with Laurenmarlowe and myself. We have a 2-bedroom. The couch is yours. LOL!
I figured that out the minute I hit send.
Everything is ready for you guys to come cookout over here next Saturday. We are giving the new grill a test run tonight. Let me know if that works for you guys. The weather is awesome tonight out on the deck! Hopefully next weekend will be nice too.
That would thrill my soul!! It won’t be as long a drive either...about 4 hours through beautiful country. You will love the hill country. Hope Dr. o can make it!!
FReepmail addy when ya git time...
Sounds wonderful! I’ll be on my schedule from this past week. Fly in on Wednesday, then back here on Monday afternoon.
Can’t make reservations this early, but I’ll be on it as soon as I can.
MIGHT be staying with you.....more about this later. :)
YaHoo! laurenmarlowe is coming to the shoot!
Prolly so...yer room is reserved!
Thank ya LUV, for taking care of that detail, looks awesome!
WOO HOO, most excited to get to go this time!
Hubby is about to burn the deck down he has the dang thing turned up so high....lol. Hopefully we will still have a deck by next weekend!
Should I call the Fire dept.?
Yup! She’s committed! :)
I don’t know how we can maintain this kind of excitement for
8 months, but I’m high on it right now! LOL!
YAY! I will definitely be there Pen, thanks so much for the invite, looking forward to getting together again! Please let me know what I can bring, even if it is just ice and limes, LOL!
It’s very kind of you and A to cook for us. That’s just awesome!
I may just walk over so that I can enjoy one (or two) of NYTexan’s FAMOUS margaritas!
Thank ya, darlin’ BB! :)
I’m not sure how we will maintain either.
Eaker & I were just talking about how cool it is that so many people have already booked (and paid for) their cottages ~ eight months in advance.
It was my pleasure...even though I felt like I was in a race! We did it! And these cottages look wonderful, huh!
Already looking forward to it and so glad you’ll be there! :)
Their decks and home are BEAUTIFUL!
It is rather amazing. The cats seem to be self-herding. LOL!
Aw, you’re so sweet! I can’t wait to visit again!
Might show up Saturday night...lol. J/K (dammit).
